Abrechnung 8.3.79

Dear Velikovsky,

this very minute I wrote the last word of the Ramses translation (Zauber, for your charms). The work has taught me much, and if I did it mainly because nowadays it seems impossible to find translators not dependent on high productivity, I did it very gladly. Mr. Curths will now check it for style, and then I shall decide about his proposals, and after that it will be set in type to be published this autumn. Of some misprints I noted in the American edition I am sending you copies.

As you have heard, I couldn’t keep myself—at the last minut—from paying a lightning visit to NASA’s press briefing at S.F. in February. I was told at the airports that Eastern flights were cancelled due to snow, or I would have called you to perhaps see you very quickly. But just by telephone alone I didn’t wish to disturb you.

I shall report to you at some later time about my activities and future plans, in a fortnight or so, I expect. But I did want to write a few words and not prolong a silence, which was imposed on me by lots of work.

And you know, a personal word from you or better still, comments, would satisfy one of my keenest wishes. Though of course your works must take precedence over everything else—and I’m also not at a loss of what to do.

All my best wishes and regards!

Yours, Marx
